Welcome to Acorns Pre-School
Acorns Pre-school has bee operating as a Pre-school for several years initially running in the school hall and the early year’s classroom, and is a member of the Early years alliance (previously known as the pre-school learning alliance). Our own building was built and completed in 2010 with money we were granted from Cornwall County Council. We started our first session here in September 2010.
Acorns Pre-School serves families from the villages of Whitstone, North Tamerton, and Week St Mary although children from other villages and the surrounding areas are very welcome.
Sessions are held at Acorns Pre-school which is situated on the Whitstone Community Primary School grounds, the Pre-School has the use of the garden area at the back of the Pre-school and the playground at the front of the building. We have trips to the park and walks around the village and we maintain close links with the Primary school. and St anne's nursing home
Children are welcome between the ages of 2 and 5 years, although numbers per session are restricted to 16. The Pre-School accepts funding vouchers from the EYEF for eligible children aged 2, 3 and 4 year olds.
The Pre-School is registered charitable organisation and is managed by a committee of parents and volunteers. The voluntary management committee has an active role in fun and educational fund raising activities throughout the year. This money is used to update and enhance the equipment and activities available for all children attending our Pre-School.
